    2020 Citroen berlingo

    I have the new Berlingo. Cracking van in my opinion. I went for a LWB version though so I do have extra room in the load area. My 18 pole fits in with loads of room but my 35 only just fits so bigger poles will struggle in the SWB version. But the van itself it's lovely, feels much more like a van than the previous models.

    I guess it's a sad day.

    I think we need re-educating. Some people here are not understanding what people are saying. Then you're not putting your prices up enough

    Blocked hosepipe

    I wouldn't waste money on a water pump. Respectively I strongly suggest you get to grips with your system it's component parts and in depth fault finding. It sounds like your pump is sucking in air causing cavitation and hydrolocking. Post some images of your system so we can help you further

    Update 1st 6 weeks in.

    theyll be disappointed though as they wont make good money overnight...it takes many years of being an established window cleaner to get the good work in the first place......its also extremely tedious and boring at times esp during the winter months...most cant hack it and pack in within the first year or two.... i know loads of guys that have tried and failed to build a decent window cleaning round over the years......

    Sorry, I have no idea. I tried looking but couldn't see a 5l one just a 1.5l one. I don't know much about hypo but I believe Viton seals are the best ones. Buna ones I have no idea, sorry.
  9. Hi guys I’m having a new van and would like to paint the floor before putting it on the road. it feels very odd to get a brand new van and sand the floor and paint it with a roll ive been looking at different products and quite like the look of the bully liner and was looking for some feedback has anyone on here used it if so was it easy to do and how’s it lasted ?
  10. Lost my very first customer today, they have been with me since 1997 so that is kind of sad. On the other hand it was a big under priced house and couldn't be done when windy so was becoming more challenging in the winter. I will view it as an opportunity to take on some easier, better value jobs and improve the productivity of the business.

    Best method of footing the ladder

    Used the nonslip ladder feets from screw fix on a dirty green ice rink decking this winter - they’re well good and worth the £12 just for that one gutter clean https://www.screwfix.com/p/non-slip-ladder-feet-guards-2-pack/3148P?tc=RA7&ds_kid=92700052138708319&ds_rl=1243324&gclid=Cj0KCQjw38-DBhDpARIsADJ3kjk8vLK9AsK2MYPz5_u9hjLwEVM8eucGE9qRks5JeiaYCFtxckBptn4aAtT5EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    Zero PPB vs Zero PPM?

    Wonder what level you need to change the nuclear resin, as if 000ppm going through, what level does the nuclear resin breakdown n actually contaminate the pure water? Or can you keep using it at 50-100ppb, or whatever its measured by, as long as your water is pure?

    New system or not?

    I don't know what tank @richb77has but the Brodex 250 litre tank has the pump and controller right at the bottom of the tank. The controller can easily get water ingress and Brodex didn't believe in an inlet pump strainer either. Take 2 wires from your battery and connect them directly to the pump 'bypassing' the controller. If the pump runs then you know the problem is either the controller or the supply wiring. (You need to connect the red wire on the motor side of the pressure switch.) It could be that you just have a basic flow controller, one that relies on the manual pressure s
  25. Yeah, I think if there was unrestricted height capacity for the water above my overflow outlet, eventually the weight of the water would have been enough to start the flow. Trouble is the lid is only about 3 or 4 inches above the overflow.
